Man facing child porn charges

BEVERLY — A Beverly man has been arrested on federal charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Timothy Bird, 38, of 50 Broadway St. was taken into custody by Beverly police and FBI agents on a warrant early Wednesday morning, according to the Beverly police log and court papers.

According to an indictment that was unsealed after the arrest, Bird allegedly used his Gateway computer “on or around” Nov. 11, 2011, to distribute pornographic images of minors.

He was also found to have child pornography on a computer seized during a search in March 2012, according to the indictment.

The indictment does not describe how many images were found or offer any specifics about what is depicted.

Bird, who made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court on Wednesday, was ordered held without bail pending his arraignment and a detention hearing on Jan. 14, according to the case docket.

He has hired an attorney, Stephen Neyman, who did not return a call for comment yesterday afternoon.
